Most Annoying Christmas Song....Ever?

8:30 AM Posted by CalgaryDaddy

Most Annoying ( and catchy I must admit) Christmas Song ever?  I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas!  I had never heard this song until our local phone company, Telus, started playing this song in heavy Christmas rotation a few years ago.  While I used to think it was cute, (well, for the first 312 times I heard it) I cannot stand it any more.  It makes me want to plug my ears with the dough from some buttery shortbread mix.  I know that kids love the high pitched voice and the catchy tune, but it really has passed its best before date to me!

 On that note, I could not resist adding the cheesiest Christmas Video of all time!  I think it has to be Wham!'s "Last Christmas" for sure.  What the hell does this video have to do with Christmas?  George Micheal staring longingly at a female? He should have won an Oscar for this performance. I guess there is nothing quite like 80's fromage to get you in the holiday spirit! 

What gets your vote as the cheesiest Christmas song or video of all time? 

Happy Tuesday!

    It's officially Xmas when "Last Christmas" starts playing. The best thing is that there are various versions of this song in many languages so people all over the world can enjoy the song...why I know so much about it is beyond me and probably signals a bigger

    I think the most annoying Christmas song is Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer or whatever it was, something like that. Drives me crazy, cute the first couple of times but enough already!

    Anything by Alvin and his most annoying, irritating, aggravating, pain in my arse Chipmunks!

    I find Santa Baby cheesy enough on its own. Then there's this version by Madonna that puts it over the top.

    I like this song, but have you heard the NEW and improved version by the cast of GLEE. The Wham version is cheesy but this one is awesome!!

    OMG, I change the station when I hear the "hippopotamus" song. The lady's (guy's) voice is so annoying and it makes me want to kill someone.

    "Last Christmas" isn't bad.

    My favorite "current" tune is "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/We Three Kings" by Barenaked Ladies. Have you heard it? It's awesome. This lady with an amazing voice sings with the guy and wow--awesome! Download it.
